Well, I've been fighting something for a week or two, finally hit yesterday and I'm still feeling crappy today. Just really tired, generally achy, and a bit of congestion and sore throat. The throat makes me nervous becuase I know strep is goi... Read more
What HAS Changed, Even if the Weight Hasn't
Okay, so my new friend ALIMESSA posted a great blog on what progress she has made, to counteract frustration at the scale not moving. Since I'm at that same exact frustration point, I thought maybe I should do the same. Here goes:

The Pictorial Story of Our New Veggie/Herb Beds
We recently cleared out the back part of the dog run, had our contractor install another gate to section it off, and built two raised beds - one for vegetables and one for herbs. I'm happy to say that almost everything we planted is thriving so... Read more
Why Do I Even Bother Getting on the Scale
Finally braved the scale after laying off for a while...23 days, to be exact, according to Wii Fit. I got on full of hope - I've really stepped up the intensity of my workouts, my pants have been feeling a tad looser, and I was fairly confident... Read more
Made it to 30
I'm just so tired this week, I think I'm fighting whatever my daughter had a few days ago...plus my arthritis keeps kicking up with all the weather changes. It took a herculean effort to get myself out of bed and onto the exercise bike this mor... Read more
More Random Thoughts
My daughter is sick, and I feel like I'm fighting it a bit but I have managed not to come down with it yet. I forced myself to work out yesterday despite feeling under the weather, and today I'm feeling better. I really have found that I get s... Read more
I so love SPRING!
What an unbelievably gorgeous weekend we're having...all the more precious because they're threatening rain and thunderstorms tomorrow. Yesterday, I got up and went for a long walk around the park in the sunrise...so beautiful. Then later Kate... Read more
I stopped by one of my favorite little spots on my way back from lunch to grab a diet coke, and when I walked in I thought hmmm, a cookie sounds sooooo good right now! But lo and behold, they were out. Karma continues to take care of me!!!

Sometimes, Karma Helps You Out
Yesterday was a very busy and tiring morning, helping shepherd Kate's kindergarten class through the Capitol - and we took a city bus there and back, no less. I finally escaped at nearly 1pm, utterly starving, tired, sore from being on my feet ... Read more
Well, I think it's a combination of maybe pushing a bit too hard on the Zoo Zoom, and my arthritis kicking up with all the weather changes, but I am just so exhausted and sore and achy this week. I didn't work out either Monday or Tuesday - I c... Read more
Checking In on April Resos
1. EXERCISE. 6 days a week: 4 days cardio, 1 day weights, 1 day yoga. (Good on doing 6 days, but have been falling down on the yoga front, gotta work on that.)
2. PORTION CONTROL. The continuing struggle. (Working on it!)
3. WATER. F... Read more
Zoo Zoom (5k Walk)
Lordy, it was hard to get out of bed today...sore from shoveling bark yesterday, plus my arthritis is kicking up with this lovely weather. But I was determined to do the Zoo Zoom, and I really wanted to beat my personal best of 44:43. So I dra... Read more
Craving versus Hunger
I read on someone's blog recently (sorry, I can't remember who!) that if you think you're hungry, you should ask yourself if you want an apple. If you do, you're really hungry...if you don't, you're just bored or have the munchies or whatever.

When a Real Bummer Turns Out to be the Best Thing
This really has nothing to do with weight, eating, or any of that - but it has everything to do with taking control of my life! I'll warn you, this will probably be long.
I have a close friend, I'll call her Carla. Carla is a bit of a dram... Read more
Maybe It's About Presentation
First of all, just wanted to say thanks to all those who commented on my "Biggest Loser" blog yesterday. I guess some of it is just reality tv exageration, which goes back to why I hate reality tv and don't watch that show in the first place! ... Read more
